Gays, Would You Get Injected Every Three Months for 100% HIV Prevention?

We’re supposed to be excited about the gay once a day pill Truvada. Studies show if you miss doses often, which I know I am personally liable to do, the daily “vitamin” as I call it becomes less effective as protection.

But what if you could go to the doctor every three months to get an injection and prevent becoming HIV positive?

From QUEERTY:
“Monkeys were injected with the drugs in two separate trials, with protection lasting a month. However, research suggests that such an injection could last for up to three months, reports the New York Times.”

“The treatment would be of greatest benefit to serodiscordant couples — where one person is HIV-positive and the other is HIV-negative.”

“Dr Wafaa El-Sadr, an AIDS expert at Colombia, tells the Times that a preliminary human trial is set to start later this year. A larger trial that could lead to widespread usage is still a number of years away.”

Would you take the injection?
